There is also a systemd unit at /lib/systemd/system/mmdvm_bridge you can use to start the service after you have it configured. I suggest you run it in the foreground until you are comfortable it's running the way you want.

This is on a linode platform.

Lito,
MMDVM_Bridge it a Partner program capable of supporting all of the modes used in the various MMDVM networks.
This is a section of MMDVM.ini

[DMR]
Address = 127.0.0.1             ; Address to send AMBE TLV frames to (export)
TXPort = 35103                  ; Port to send AMBE TLV frames to (export)
RXPort = 35100                  ; Port to listen on (import)
Slot = 1                        ; Export slot

; Configure the Yaesu Fusion Partner
; Audio format is AMBE 72 bit
; Audio format is IMBE 88 bit
[YSF]
Address = 127.0.0.1             ; Address to send AMBE TLV frames to (export)
TXPort = 35100                  ; Port to send AMBE TLV frames to (export)
RXPort = 35103                  ; Port to listen on (import)
FallbackID = 3113042            ; In case we can not find a valid DMR id in the database, export this one
ExportTG = 3166                 ; Which TG to export
Slot = 1                        ; Export slot


Each stanza contains the information unique to importing and exporting data to another Partner (stanza)
You point a TXPort of one mode at the RXPort of the mode you want to connect to. I have bolded the changes.

The DMR TXPort now points to the YSF RXPort (35103)
The YSF TXPort now points to the DMRRXPort (35100)

Think crossover cable.
Input to output, RX to TX
output to input, TX to RX

Now we need to enable and configure the 2 modes you want to use.
Use the MMDVM_Bridge to enable and configure the modes just like you would in MMDVM.ini
In the case of YSFn <-> DMR your life is easier since neither mode needs a gateway to communicate.

Point the YSF mode in MMDVM_Bridge.ini at your YSF reflector
Point the DMR mode in MMDVM_Bridge.ini at BM.

Hope this helps,
73, Steve N4IRS
